LIÉBART-RÉGNIER CHAMPAGNE


In 1960, the young winegrower Lucien Liebart settled with his wife Georgette Regnier in Baslieux sous Chatillon , a typical little village in the Marne Valley, and together they founded the LIÉBART-RÉGNIER Champagne House. When his father died in 1987, Laurent naturally took over the family vines, and was later assisted by his wife Valérie.

As an independent winegrower, Laurent works hard to ensure that his champagnes reproduce the expressiveness of their land. Laurent respects the environment and has turned to integrated vine growing. He is curious to learn and use alternative techniques such as incorporating lunar cycles during planting, tilling, cover planting, sexual confusion and so on, putting these methods into practice to cultivate his vines.

NV demi sec

+805259 · 6x750ml

60% Meunier, 20% Pinot Noir, 20% Chardonnay. Opaline yellow with gentle golden hues. On the nose, an attack of exotic fruit, predominantly pineapple and man-go, with more conventional vine peach and apricot. The palate has a gentle opening carried by the sweetness and a subtle tartness. Montmorency cherries and bergamot define the palate. A nice acidity underpins the wine and balances out the tartness. This is a classic dessert champagne however, for a more unusual pairing, it will work well with the sweet, sour and salty flavours of Asian dishes such as a lemon and chicken stir-fry.
